If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

26-01-2019 Patrick is a sweet young boy who but very nervous of people at the momen.  He is frightened to be handled and very shut down.  For this reason we feel he will need at least one other dog in his new home who he can copy and learn from.  This will help him with house training and lead walking.  He is a very bright and inquisitive boy who with the right family, encouragement and a kind resident dog(s) to follow will come around well when settling into his new home.  As Patrick is so nervous we would not consider homing him with any young children.

Please meet... the BABY of my section... PATRICK 😍🤗❤💛💙💚
Patrick is starting to gain some confidence and is a happy little lad, eager to enjoy life. He is an inquisitive little boy who stands at the front of his kennel having a nose at his human kennel mummy, waiting in great anticipation for what's next in his day!
Patrick is too shy and scared to run out of his kennel at playtime, and instead looks up at me, wags his tail and runs away, before reaching up to me - he wants me to pick him up and carry him outside! Once in my arms, he holds onto me like a toddler would. Patrick is just like a little baby! He likes to follow us around and  have an explore out in the sandschool. 
Patrick has started his harness and lead training already and  is doing well. Lots of encouragement and fuss from people gets this boy taking little steps! That, or a pretty female dog near by! Patrick shares his beds, food and toys perfectly. Just like a child, he never wants to go to bed but once in, he snuggles up to his fellow furry friends!
Patrick is amazing. Everyone needs a Patrick!  He has his whole life ahead of him and would do very well, very quickly, if he found himself in a home environment asap. So I'm obviously urging all suitable fosterers to foster this lad this weekend!!!! He will need to be homed with another more confident role model who will teach him everything he needs t know in life! I'm hoping he gets adopted by someone who has a perfectly behaved dog so that he continues to be a good boy! We would not consider homing Patrick with any young children as they would be way too overwhelming for him.
I think Patrick is going to be quite popular, so if you like the look and sound of him, please apply for him Everyone loves Patrick!!!

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
